    The CV looks better than ever, great job on the wheel opening size and shape, and the slope of the C pillar. Already super-accurate.

    Wow. Totally geeking out on all the details on this, I'll come back later and will certainly notice a whole other model's worth.

    Interior looks terrific, a great preview for how the rest of the car will turn out.

    Great weathering, love the oil stain at the bottom of the rear end cover - I've never seen a 1:1 that didn't have that.

    Resin is the only way to go for the two cars you named. MPC did the full size Chevrolets up to 1976, nobody else did the big '70s American cars in plastic. Air Trax did/does a couple of early fuselage '70-'71 Chryslers, Missing Link does the '71 and '78 Ford LTD sedans.

    The body already looks loads better than what comes out of the box. Nice work on the filler panels too.

    Very nice build, this one attends our Saturday car show regularly:

    Happy SCJ day.

    Beautiful job, I especially like your brush painted burled walnut dash. My only criticism of the kit is that it is a curbside with no engine, which would have been nice to have.

    Exceptional! Just the type of build I was hoping to see with the new Moebius Cyclone. 10.5/10.

    Mike's right on. The AMT bodies are better, not absolutely perfect, but those guys back in the '60s sure knew how to capture the feel of the cars in a way that seems less common today. The headlight rings on the AMT grille are too deep and need to be trimmed down a bit, but almost nobody does that. The tulip panel (between the trunk and rear window) on the Trumpeter is not right; the panel curves up at the front to meet the rear window opening on the 1:1, while the Trumpeter just forms a sharp angle in that area, making the panel to window transition a bit clunky looking. Looks like an easy fix to me.
    The Trumpeter has the advantage of being reasonably cheap and available, and the slightly bigger/wider size works to your advantage with the 1:24 Monogram Mustang chassis as the Trumpeter claims a 1:25 size, but is really a little bigger - though not as big as a true 1:24. Call it 1:24.5. One thing you may find is that the wheel tubs on the Monogram chassis are a bit shallow, and you may elect to minitub them and narrow the rear end a bit so you can fit wider tires, the T/A Falcons ran some pretty big meats back there.

    The Ranchero body is about the same, too blocky down low and the roof appears to be a little too low in the front, as though it's been angle chopped - so some massaging will have to take place there as well. It's got other problems, like a concave grill where the '65 is more convex, gas filler caps on both sides of the bed, and taillights a little too far inboard, nothing really major. I own a 1:1 Ranchero, as well as a '64 Sprint HT, so I've got some decent reference material on hand.
